Lovely, large map of the Holy Land divided among the Tribes on both sides of the River Jordan. It covers the region with the shoreline from Sidon to Gaza and inland to Syria and the Arabian Desert. A large inset map shows the Nile Delta, Sinai and Canaan with the Wandering of the Children of Israel, titled "Carte de la Terre de Canaan ou Terre Promise…" The map is filled with fine detail and ornamented with two elaborate cartouches. This is the first state.

References: cf Laor #667; Pedley #393.

Condition: A

Sharp impression with original outline color and wide original margins. There is some chipping of paper edges, well away from the map.

Estimate: $325 - $400
